Dark Nature return with the second part of their SS12 collection, building on what we saw last month with a T-shirt, pullover hood, two nylon windbreakers and two more 5 panel caps.
Dark Nature have copped more than a little heat for their output recently, and although there has been some constructive criticism, I don’t think they deserve a lot of the bad press. This is a decent release from the brand, and it will no doubt be a welcome sight for current fans, though it’s not likely to appease any of their current detractors. The maroon pullover hood is strong, with the addition of a small yellow logo hit on the sleeve, but it’s T-shirt counterpart is a little too bright for me. Dark Nature do have to be careful of over-using their triangle motif though, and I’d like to see something a little more adventurous next time around.
With the windbreakers I’m 50/50 – they could be a really nice addition, but these images are in danger of making them look a little ‘cheap’. Finally, two polka dot 5 panels complete the collection, in a similar fashion to those from the previous drop with the ‘Southern Division Produce’ woven label on the front. Get a closer look at the product below, and if you want to pick anything up, the collection is available now from Dark Nature Clothing.
